Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report Baking Powder ABSourreur PURE JAMES G, EEPEATS IT, IF ASSURED OF ELECTION HE WOULD NOT ACCEPT. The Offlnc of Prrslilnnt Too Exnctlnj* for alUTan of I?is Age, nnd It Would gna CnnKtructivi; Sulcldo In His Case—His Physician Iittervletvud. PITTSBURG, April 9.—The Times prints the following from a staff correspondent at Washington: If any answer had been needed to the anonymous story that Secretary Bhiine was complaining that he had been badgered and hounded by friends of President Harrison into writing his celebrated letter declining to be a candidate for president, Mr. Blaine himself now answers it. In the course of a conversation with a representative of The Times and one of the leading physicians of the coimtry, one who has occasionally attended the secretary, the physician remarked: "I see some of the newspapers continue to connect your name with the presidency, Mr. Secretary," Promptly, as one answers a question upon which he has been deliberating, Mr. Blaine responded: _ "The president's office is a most laborious and exhaustive one. Ho has no voice, no alternate, no substitute upon whose shoulders he can share responsibility. There is a vice president, but our scheme of government does not permit him to assume the powers and duties of tire president, except in case of death, removal, resignation or disability of the president. It does not contemplate the vice president as an occasional acting president for a day or two, or a week or two, when the man who has been electad to that office may need rest and recreation. The presidency is an office without sleep. I am now 62 years old, and although you have told me and I believe that in heart, lungs and kidneys and otherwise I am free from organic diseases, Buffering only from torpidity of the liver, I do not believe that if I were to be inaugurated I would not live out my term. If I wera assured, therefore, of a nomination and election to the presidency I could not accept it. At my age and with my temperament, and knowing what the effect of a life of exhausting labor has been upon my vitality, it would be constructive suicide." The secretary spoke with the emphasis of perfect candor and with an apparent desire to make himself definitely understood. REFUSED TWO MISSIONS. Both the French and Chinese Declined by Mr. Euan. • ' NEW YOBK, April 10.—The Herald's correspondent in Valparaiso cables his paper: United States Consul McCreery told me that Minister Patrick Egan had been offered by Secretary of State Blaine the appointment of minister either to Paris or to Pekin. Mr. Egan, BO Mr. McCreery says, after thinking the matter over, declined b«ybh offers. He did not want to go to Paris on the ground that it was too expensive. His objec- Won to Pekin was the distance. Cannot Be Confirmed. WASHINGTON, April 12,—The published statement that Minister Egan had declined the tender of the position of United States minister to China and to France cannot be confirmed at the state department, but is generally discredited.

NEW YORK, April 11.—A Chicago special says a conference of Republican leaders was held at the Graed Pacific hotel Sunday and all opposition to Harrison's renomination was practically killed, it is said. Senator Allison represented bis boom, Senator Sawyer of Wisconsin stood for the president, and Judge Blodgett and Jesse Spaulding represented Senator Culloua.

Seven Feraono Burned to Dcnth at Fort FORT MADISON, la., April 0. —Afright- ful calamity occurred during the night by which nine people lost their lives. At 2oi.'3 Santa Fe avenue stood a two- story building owned by S. V, Kitchen, the upper story used as a dwelling by the owner, and the lower occupied by the general store and meat market of Mclntosh & Peasa. At 11:45 p. m. the building was discovered ou fire, the alarm was given and the department turned out. About two minutes after the fire \vas discovered a terrible explosion shook the building, and the flames burst out furiously. It is supposed that some kegs of powder stored in the build- Ing exploded and destroyed the narrow stairs leading inside the building from the second story and thus shutting off all hope of escape. The fire burned very rapidly. The nearest hydrant was four blocks distant, and before connections could be made the building was doomed. No cries were heard from those in the building and they all perished in the flames. They were: S. V. KITCHEX, aged 30. MRS. S. V. KITCHEN, aged 30. Miss SIDNEY DAY, a sister of Mrs. Kitchen, aged 18. AUGUST KSEMEYER, a boarder, aged 18. SAMUEL KITCHEN, brother of the proprietor, aged 20. HENRY KXKMEYER, a boarder, aged 17. Three children of S. V. Kitchen, aged 1, 3 and 5 years. The bodies of Mrs. Kitchen and baby and sister, Miss Day, were found in one embrace and it was with difficulty that they were separated. A dwelling owned by Joha Knock was also destroyed with no loss of life. The origin of the flreia- a mystery. , • . THREE VESSELS MISSING. Anxiety in Shipping Circles for Safety of Severn! Overduti Steamers. PHILADELPHIA, April 10.—Shipping circles are at present greatly alarmed over the probable loss of three vessels, the crews numbering forty-eight persons and property to the valuation of about $248,000. On Jan. 28 the Italian bark Immacol»ta, Captain Muro, sailed from Cien- fugea for this port laden with sugar valued at $63,000 and manned by a crew of sixteen persons, since which time she has never been heard from nor seen. The German ship Alarich, Captain Eggers, bound from Huelva to Philadelphia or New York has not been heard from since leaving that port, Feb. 22, and hopes for her safety have been given up. She was laden with 2,800 tons of copper ore and was manned by a crew of twenty-five men. On March 2, the well known old Philadelphia built schooner, Taylor and Mathis, sailed from Norfolk for New York with a cargo of lumber and since that time has not been seen nor have any of the seven members of the crew been heard • from The probable loss of these three vessels can he attributed to the recent succession of eastern gales that prevailed on the coast for over two weeks. The British steamship Walby, from Bermuda, March 30, for this port is also overdue and some anxiety is felt concerning her. ^ GREASERS ESCAPE. Over a Hundred Murderers Leave By An Underground Fausage. CITY OF MEXICO, April 11.—Guards of the prison here have discovered an underground passage leading from the murderers' department, by which over 100 prisoners sentenced to death were enabled to escape. To Be Opened In 1893. WASHINGTON,April 9.—The examiners have completed their work on the White Earth Indian reservation and are now engaged on the Bed Lake reservation. Parties who have, anticipated locating on government lands on either reservation during the spring or summer of 1803 will be disappointed. The timber sales will not be made until the work of the examiners on the Bed Lake reservation is finished. The agricultural lands may be opened to settlement this fall, but the prospect now is that they will not be until the spring of 1893. The ChrlstUn Endeavor Bute.
